Easter's on the hop; your letters Question Time.

Byline: FIONA PARKER

QWHY does the date of Easter change every year? Julie Stevenson Bromley, Kent AEASTER is called a moveable feast because it is not celebrated on the same date every year.

Easter falls somewhere between late March and late April each year, following the moon cycle.

After several centuries of disagreement between the churches, they all accepted that Easter falls on the first Sunday after the paschal full moon.

This is the first full moon on or after March 21 - the ecclesiastic vernal equinox.
